If you've been hanging out around the IBKC for a while, you know this photo. That adorable paw belongs to adorable Willamena Bouvier, who we had the pleasure of fostering many, many years ago.
We've made it a tradition to share this photo each Thanksgiving.
I'll be taking a break tomorrow to celebrate the day, so I'll give my "thanks" today.
I am so thankful for this community of ours and the positive place that it is. Thank you for only contributing kindness. I'm thankful for the many ways you support us and what we do. Your actions remind me daily that there is much good and great compassion in the world. I'm so thankful every single one of you.
I'm thankful that our little Lumpkins are safe and recovering in their new home. I'm thankful for all who helped facilitate their move, and for their new foster mama, who's taken over their care. I'm thankful that the situation wasn't worse, because it easily could have been. I'm thankful for the good work our shelter does each day, and the giving, huge-hearted folks that work and volunteer there.
I hope you are all feeling loved and connected. I hope you are happy and healthy. I hope you have more reasons to be thankful for than you can count, but if you feel like you only have a few in this moment, I hope you can focus on those. I hope you are surrounded at your Thanksgiving table by those who you love most.
Have a wonderful holiday, dear friends.
We love you.
